Ellie Goulding Joins Princes to Support Tusk at Polo Event

Princes William and Harry participated in their first charity polo match of the season at the weekend raising a total of £125,000 to support the work of both Tusk and Sentebale. Taking part in the annual Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park, the Princes’ Audi Ultra Team came away with a narrow win against Team Audi Quattro, scoring 5 goals to 4.

The match saw some of England’s top polo players come together in support of the two charities. More than 300 guests joined Audi for this exclusive, invitation-only event. Celebrities in attendance included Oscar nominated actor, Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matt Smith, Sophie Turner, Naomi Harris, James Nesbitt, Jeremy Irvine and Pink Floyd drummer, Nick Mason.

Following the late afternoon game, guests were then treated to dinner and a hilarious cabaret by longstanding Tusk patron, the impressionist, Rory Bremner. The evening concluded with a fantastic performanceon stage given by theGrammy-nominated singer Ellie Goulding, who generously donated her fee to the charities.

Over the last decade, the Princes have raised over £9.5m for their charities and Tusk has been incredibly fortunate to has been a beneficiary of their efforts since 2003.

We are extremely grateful to both Princes, Audi UK and Ellie Goulding for their very generous support of Tusk’s conservation work this weekend.
